Projects of Metropolis members at the Policy Transfer Platform Metropolis Secretariat General / Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment

One Year of the Policy Transfer Platform: tell the world about innovative projects in your city!

The Metropolis Policy Transfer Platform, which is run by Berlin, has been online for one year now.  To celebrate its anniversary, we invite your city to join this great hub of information about more than 100 case studies concerning pioneering, prize-winning projects all over the world.
The platform presents projects that may be transferred from city to city, whether we are talking about micro-gardens in Dakar, social programmes for informal settlements in Buenos Aires or the Sandokdoro Renaissance Project in Busan.
It is worth getting involved for the following reasons:
  • You can draw greater attention to exemplary projects in your city. Since the platform was launched, we have had over 40,000 page views, with visitors from more than 140 countries in the world.

  • In the time between events and conferences, you can also get actively involved in the Metropolis network. 34 Metropolis members, just about a quarter of the entire association, already have projects featured on the platform.

  • As one of our registered experts, you can find important contacts concerning the projects and topics that interest you and you can offer you own expertise.

  • More and more international partner institutions and bodies responsible for making awards to cities support the platform. In addition to the Metropolis Awards, the platform will be cooperating in the future with the Guangzhou Award and the EUROCITIES Award – to name just a few.
